stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea

public briefing we have seen in two days. law enforcement telling fox news the fbi is talking about whether or not to release images from the scene showing one or two or possibly more than two people -- they say they'd like to talk to about the bombing. the feds have not yet named any official suspects. there's a source saying investigators are examining new lead from social media, collecting more than 30,000 messages sent within a one-mile radius of the crime scene the days before and after the twin bombings. on capitol hill it's been busy. homeland security secretary janet napolitano confirming the fbi still needs and encourages happen from -- help from the public. >> there's video that raises the question of those the fbi would like to speak with. i wouldn't characterize them as suspects. this is not an ncif episode. times you have to take time to properly put the chain together to identify the perpetrators. >> that was a long hearing on the will. katherine harris watched a lot of it live. good afternoon. what else are we hearing from officials on the hill? >> the fbi says they b
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
to make it easier for states to use current background check laws. >>> another huge story developing in texas this morning. a major break in the case of three high-profile killings in kaufman county. the wife of a disgraced former justice of the peace is pinning the crimes on her husband. authorities say kim williams knew details about the shootings of a prosecutor and d.a. and his wife but weren't made public and she confessed that her husband eric pulled the trigger. she is charged with capital murder. her husband, eric williams, is in jail on a terroristic threat charge. investigators say an e-mail threatening more attacks was traced back to him. we're expecting more information on this this afternoon. back to you guys in boston. >> all right, thanks so much, christine. >>> ahead on "starting point" we will have more on the breaking news of the morning, this massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in the town of west, texas. many, many people injured. search and rescue operation under way. we'll bring you the latest. stay with us. >>> welcome back to "starting point." i'm john ber
is in custody the last thing we should want for him is to remain silent. under the law of war we can hold this suspect as a potential enemy combatant not entitled to miranda warnings or the appointment of counsel." with us now from new york is paul callan, former new york prosecutor. what are police trying to find out from him at this point? >> i think we're trying to find out what things, first, are there other unexploded bombs out there that have to be recovered to protect the public and secondly they're going to want to know how did you get all of this explosive material? who sold it to you? where is the chain? are there others who may be involved in some kind of a broader conspiracy? those are the two areas that i think federal authorities would be exploring. >> obviously there are a lot of legal implications about this and a great deal of discussion about this. i want to you listen to what alan dershowitz said. >> the government made a mistake claiming the exception to miranda when the police said there's no public safety, it's solved, it's over, there are no further threats but the
set up for law enforcement. we have a command post set up for the emergency units shlgs also. and we still have a triage center set up at the community center right over here. >> what's the status of the plant? >> it's still smoldering. right now, they did not give us any update on it. it was smoldering, still, and there still is active, you know, other ingredients there on the facility. so we don't want that to explode again. so, right now, we cannot get fire fighters in there. we're worried about people right now, not property. we want people to be safe that. 's our main goal right now. getting people safe and getting them out of there. >> we're being told hundreds of people have been wounded in this fire and explosion. joining us now on the line is keith hopkins. he's from the providence health center. he is in waco texas. mr. hopkins, just tell us,what sort of injuries are you treating people for after this explosion? right now, we've treated broken bones, head injuries and quite a few from respiratory distress from the an hydrous ammonia. >> we have to be very careful in terms o
